We Can Never Go Home #1
For me, the super power plot has lost it's shine. I think that's one of the reasons why I stopped reading They're Not Like Us. Overly dramatic rehashing of stories written repeatedly over the last few decades. This story takes us away from that. These aren't super heroes and the focus isn't on their powers but rather the real challenges that kids can face... like abusive parents and creepy boyfriends who don't know when to stop and school bullies.
Writers Matthew Rosenberg & Patrick Kindlon have managed to bring a tired theme to a new place we can all enjoy. Artist Joshua Hood brings the characters Maddie and Duncan to life with vibrant colors. All the frustration and complications of growing up in suburbia have found there way into yet another awesome comic book. I'm really looking forward to reading the rest of this one.
